Key details

Building on the basics, AutoCAD intermediate training teaches existing users how to use the advanced features and commands available in the application. 

You will learn a wide range of techniques, tricks and tips that most AutoCAD users are unaware of, that will bring you significant productivity gains and ensure you’re utilising the full power that AutoCAD offers.

Sessions include:

  • Setup and configuration of AutoCAD.
  • Advanced use of layers.
  • Dimensioning strategy and principles.
  • Scaling with text and dimensions.

As with all of our AutoCAD courses, when you attend AutoCAD Intermediate training you receive:

  • A comprehensive training guide.
  • An e-certificate confirming successful course completion. This is emailed to delegates directly from Autodesk. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at existing AutoCAD users who want to take their use of the application to the next level.

Where does training take place?

Courses are available at our centres at Birmingham, Bristol, Milton Keynes, Reading and Sheffield.

Accredited AutoCAD training

Armada is an Autodesk authorised Training Centre (ATC), and our AutoCAD Intermediate training courses are accredited by Autodesk.

Expert trainers

AutoCAD Intermediate training is hosted by Autodesk Certified Instructors, with vast experience of using the application professionally.

How will I learn?

AutoCAD Intermediate training is hands-on and practical.

Our trainers teach the necessary theory then demonstrate techniques step-by-step. You then practice the techniques taught on a computer running AutoCAD.

There is plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create.


You should be familiar with the fundamentals of AutoCAD, i.e. have attended AutoCAD Essentials training or have equivalent knowledge through other means.

Our guarantees to you

We offer:

On-request AutoCAD Intermediate training also available

As well as our scheduled courses, AutoCAD Intermediate training is also available on-request, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group.

On-request courses can be hosted at one of our centres or your venue. Your training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing in AutoCAD. See On-request AutoCAD training for details.
